I’ve gotta say I preferred the Tinseltown style. It really managed to merge the look of the toyline, and the concept of the book series look in a way that looked much more organic than either the Ghost, or Journey to One styles managed.
They had proper facial expressions, visible mechanics (which lined up with set looks), and a really fused together design that, while yes making them look a bit… off, a bit too toy like, was still much less so than Ghosts, and the Netflix series was a bit too… mechanical looking for what was supposed to be a much more organic than mechanical mix that they had.
Now if you could somehow merge the Tinseltown, and Miramax styles I’d say you’d probably have the perfect look, Miramax really captured the organic essence, and had the best take on mask styles, but was a bit too… far off from the toys looks for me to really connect them together (I do of course know that Greg has stated both are canonically different, but still. I grew up with the toys, not the movie. So while I do enjoy seeing the more ‘alive’ take on it, I’ll always prefer one that’s similarities can easily be spotted when compared to their sets. Y’know, in a way that fits how I’d probably be imagining them to look when buggering about with 'em.), while Tinseltown managed to keep that toy look still merged in with the characters, but in a way that it wasn’t the main focus… though it did cut down on the more biological looking aspects they should’ve had, and did make for some awkwardly proportioned limbs, and odd armour looks (both in size, positioning, and placing) at times.
